Featuring the latest box office movies and leather recliner seats complemented with food and beverage service the club’s new cinema will aim to deliver the best movie experience in the region.
Confirming the news last Friday YMGCR CEO Richard Hogg said that this development is exciting news for both the club and the community.
“We are teaming up with Moovibar to develop the theatre in the club’s current premises to provide its members and guests with a ‘big screen’ cinema experience,” Mr Hogg said.
Mr Hogg added that the audio and visual technology being acquired is second to none and the seating planned is electric recliner leather styled with generous leg room.
Prices have not yet been established but Mr Hogg anticipates the cost of admission for a member to be no more than $12.
“We want our members and guests to enjoy the luxuries of a cinema experience at affordable prices” Mr Hogg said.
Mr Hogg said that the club’s established facilities and services will complement the cinema.
“The fact that the movie patrons can enjoy food and beverage before, after or during the show is a plus together with ample parking provided,” he said.
A wheelchair lift is also in the planning to assist patrons entering the upper lounge.
In partnership with Moovibar, the type of movies offered will range from latest box office releases through to now digitised back catalogue classics, themed movie nights (including 3D), short films, documentaries and film festivals.
Director of Moovibar Gary Patterson said the company was excited to have Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort as a partner
“This concept will work well for the local a community and the golf club,” Mr Patterson said.
“Because we do not have a competing cinema in the local area we expect to deliver the popular movies early as they are released by the distributers,’ Mr Patterson said.
When not showing movies, the theatrette can be booked for lectures, tutorials or presentations adding to the already growing conference market at the golf club resort. The audio visual technology also has the capacity to hook into the free–to-air and Foxtel mediums that the Club can then present to its members for any major sporting and other special events.
The establishment of cinema will be perfect timing for the club who are about to officially start their new loyalty rewards programme, Yarrarewards, on March 3. Mr Hogg said that rewards points earned could be redeemed for movie tickets. Members are encouraged to renew their memberships before February 28 to earn a bonus 500 reward points with a value of $5.
Last year Moira Shire Council was seeking expressions of interest from private developers with a view of establishing a cinema in the shire. Mr Hogg confirmed that the club have since contacted the Moira Shire to let them know of their intentions.
